    Hi, I was playing Race 07 and the wheel workd fine for 2-3laps, than suddently it just disconnected and won't connect to the PC again. I tried change USB port and all but nothing. I tried to reconnect the power cable to, but there is a blue light on the power cable so that should not be the problem. And also tried to reinstall the thrustmaster drivers, but nothing works...

    Anyone know what I can do?...

    If you find it is completely dead I have a T500 here which is in perfect working order, BUT, several parts like the shifter paddle system has been removed to make a custom TX setup, I could sell you it really cheap to make something which works again ?

    I take it you have tried to see if the wheel works in Windows Device Manager/Game Controller setting program etc ? or another game maybe ? I am guessing so.....
